Default Rear door handle

I replaced the actuator on the left rear door on my 05 passat tdi wagon and it worked fine for several days and today the cable from the actuator to the outside door handle popped out of the door handle. I put it back in and it popped out several more times. Any clues what might be my issue with it???

did you replace that part or is it the same part was in there that is popping out, VW is notorious for bad windows strapping clamp and lines popping out like this in door cards. Sounds like its bent and or worn out. try bending the clip that holds it in place a bit to make it tighter, maybe a ziptie too, this usually does the trick for issues like this.

Instale with tension on the cable. Is your door handle secure or loose?
